Deflexion sentence example
A ray of light from a lamp is thrown on the mirror, whence it is reflected upon a white surface or scale set at a distance of about 3 ft., forming a bright spot on the surface; the slightest angular deflexion of the mirror, owing to its distance from the scale, moves the spot of light a very appreciable distance to the right or left according to the direction of the angular movement.
Its deflexion was observed by an attached mirror in the usual way.
At first a considerable current is indicated by the galvanometer; the deflexion soon diminishes, however, and finally becomes very small.
Taking disease to be a deflexion from the line of health, the first requisite of medicine is an extensive and intimate acquaintance with the norm of the body.
While the tendril is thus diverted from its original direct course, the axillary bud of the leaf opposite the tendril begins a new podium, by lengthening into a shoot which assumes the direction the tendril had prior to its deflexion.Advertisement
The resistance in circuit with the fine wire is then altered until the galvanometer shows no deflexion.
When conducting a deflexion experiment the de flecting magnet K is placed with its centre at 30 cm.
The value of the constants P and Q can be obtained by making deflexion experiments at three distances.
Thus it is usual, if the magnets are of similar shape, to make the deflected magnet 0.467 of the length of the deflecting magnet, in which case Q is negligible, and thus by means of deflexion experiments at two distances the value of P can be obtained.
In the deflexion experiment, in addition to the induction correction, and that for the effect of temperature on the magnetic moment, a correction has to be applied for the effect of temperature on the length of the bar which supports the deflexion magnet.Advertisement
Deflecting Force for Translation in a Curved Path.In machinery, deflecting force is supplied by the tenacity of some piece, such as a crank, which guides the deflected body in its curved path, and is unbalanced, being employed in producing deflexion, and not in balancing another force.
If there is the slightest displacement of the centre o gravity of the system from the axis of revolution a force acts on th shaft tending to deflect it, and varies as the deflexion and as th square of the speed.
If the shaft is therefore to revolve stably this force must be balanced at any instant by the elastic resistanc of the shaft to deflexion.
Let a small body of the weight w undergo translation in a circulai path of the radius p, with the angular velocity of deflexion a, so that the common linear velocity of all its particles is v=ap. Then the actual energy of that body is WV2/2g = Waip2/2g.
In very short girders the shear must be computed, and in long girders the deflexion, particularly the flexure from the variable load, since a flexure of more than of the length is liable to crack the plastering of the ceilings carried by the girders.Advertisement
Photothermal detection of trace compounds in water, using the deflexion of a water meniscus.
Using electrostatic deflexion to divert and collect cells with one or more fluorescent labels enables defined subpopulations to be sorted.
In some cases the NEO is held together too weakly to be able to absorb the energy transfer required for deflexion.
To take the example given under Confusions of Words above, loin for lion in Cranford is probably a printer's error, but it is conceivable that it is due to a deflexion of the authoress's mind or pen through the accidental proximity of the "mutton chop."
Matt Derbyshire gave Blackburn a second minute lead with a shot that took a wicked deflexion on its way past Wolves keeper Carl Ikeme.Advertisement
